So guys, I have a confession. I’m a little nuts about Christmas.
I LOVE decorations, giant trees, sparkling lights, carols, fruit mince pies, Christmas lunch, family, good cheer and everything else that comes with the holiday.
And I am well aware of the immense waste, unnecessary gifts, consumerism etc that surround Christmas but let me have this one and I’ll be good for the rest of the year!
I also LOVE giving (wanted) gifts.
So this year, for The Green Hub’s very first Christmas, I am doing a HUGE giveaway I am calling, The Green Hub 12 Days of Christmas!
Starting on the 5th of December I am giving away one gift, every day, for 12 days. Exciting stuff!!
